Christmas Cards Potter Style
- [ Scott @ 04:30 PM . GMT . Movie: GoF ]
Dan Radcliffe has an interesting Christmas card this year, according to The State.
Daniel Radcliffe, star of the "Harry Potter" films, is dreaming of a wet Christmas.
The 15-year-old actor convinced several crew members on the set of "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" to pose with him on an underwater set for a unique Christmas card, according to the star's UK website.
Accompanying the image of the card on the site is a message Radcliffe wrote to explain the unusual photo.
"Please find enclosed the Christmas card I will be sending this year. It was taken on the last day of filming the underwater task, 20 feet down in the tank which was specially constructed at Leavesden Studios," Radcliffe writes.
The "underwater task" is one of a series of challenges in "Goblet" that Harry must complete as part of the Triwizard Tournament during his fourth year at Hogwarts.
"Every single person you see, trained, helped and guided me through this very demanding sequence," he continues. "I have obviously taken a few liberties with the photo to give it a festive flavour!"
Radcliffe refers to the digital reindeer antlers and red noses he added to the image of each of the crewmembers' heads.
The letter also encourages anyone wishing to send him a Christmas present to instead send a donation to Demelza House, a Children's Hospice.
"Last year's appeal was extremely successful and, while I love receiving gifts from all over the world, I am afraid I no longer have enough space in my house to store the wonderful presents I have been sent over the years," he writes.
Radcliffe will send the Christmas card in response to all letters he receives through the end of December.
"Goblet," the latest film based on the best-selling novels by J.K. Rowling, centers on Harry's struggles with fame, doubts and hormones. Starring Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, Ralph Fiennes, Gary Oldman, Alan Rickman, Michael Gambon, Maggie Smith and Miranda Richardson, the film is scheduled for a November 2005 release.

Who is that Girl?!
- [ Nick @ 09:53 AM . GMT . Movie: GoF ]
No more than a few days ago, Dan Radcliffe sent an underwater picture of the second task as part of his Christmas card to DanRadcliffe.Com. However, the girl next to Dan, assumed to be Emma Watson, is in fact, a stunt double. (Click Here to view the photo) Jenna from DanRadcliffe.Com responded to the subject:
After talking to our source at Warner Bros. I can tell you the girl in the photo is neither Emma or Clemence. She is a stunt double. Unfortunately there were reports on some media websites saying it was either Emma or Clemence, which caused mass confusion, without confirming their facts - and oddly enough without mentioning our site either ... guess journalism fact checking just isn't what it used to be, so please disregard those reports posted up on those sites - they are not accurate.
As far as what is strapped to Dan's leg. All I can say is that it is a "prop", but cannot reveal what it "really" is ... sorry guys.
Concerning the other cast members in the photo - we were told there are none - they are all stunt doubles.
Hopefully this has cleared everything up for everyone.

Yule Ball Preparations Begin
- [ Nick @ 07:58 PM . GMT . Movie: GoF ]
With the filming of the Yule Ball just beginning, so are the dance lessons. Jamie Waylett (casted as Crabbe) recently posted a diary entry on his site...
We're still filming but this week and next we have dance lessons for the Yule Ball. I'm learning to waltz and after four days I'm getting better. I've been paired up with a really pretty girl for the ball (we thought for a while my partner was going to be Goyle!!!), and she's a dancer so she's teaching me. I've been told I'm 'light on my feet' - imagine Crabbe, light on his feet!!
DVD Launch and Yule Ball
Thursday night was the DVD Launch for Prisoner of Azkaban - I had a great time! I went with my family and my friend Melissa from The Leaky Cauldron, who's here from New York and staying with us this week (my mum says they did loads of shopping today).
It's always nice to see everyone away from the sets. Warner Bros. made up a whole Great Hall for it, and the sweets were cool, especially the chocolate! There was a fountain of chocolate and I dipped at least 12 marshmallows into it - four at a time!
Thanks to Leaky.

HP4U Set Report
- [ M17 @ 03:32 PM . GMT . Movie: GoF ]
A huge thanks to iHP reader Elizabeth D. for sending in this tip -
HP4U has posted a new set report, complete with pictures which you can see at the link.
Here's an excerpt:
Considering there were only, to my knowledge, 5 onlookers to the set, security has been tightened considerably from last year. Absolutely no chance of photographs was the common WB line, so in not wanting to upset anyone we left it alone. I did however try to capture some of the scenes and the backgrounds used to give you a general feel of what was happening, these images can be found below, ask if you wish to use them or at least give credit.
What do you all want to know then? Dan looked great, wearing grey trousers and black hoody. I caught him walking back to the set, enough time to say 'hi'. Emma also, back in another pink top for Hermione? And finally Bonnie, wonderful as usual and always time for a two minute chat. I even managed a quick signature.
Boy, one of Daniels' doubles really is the 'double' of him, for five minutes I thought I was watching the real Daniel in shot, but, you guessed it...............
Today's scene was some type of conversation between Dan, Emma & Bonnie, sat on a log type of creation right next to the lake, I could only really think it resembled a scene of contemplation for Harry, maybe at the end of the second task in GoF? Not sure on that as I was allowed only to watch for five or so minutes, but Iwas watching from two great positions, first about 20' away to the left of the filming, then after taking a bit of a detour I sat on a bench right in the middle of the action (if you can call it that) with the crew.
Click "More" to see some more... (Thanks, HP4U - and the pictures of the set are pretty cool, so check them out at the link above)...
I was hoping (as with last year) that the cast would go back to their trailers for lunch but everything this time was done 'on the move' because of the limited filming time and only 1 day to do it in. It's now dark in the UK by 5pm these days!
Considering the amount of work that goes into one shot and one scene it's always amazing no matter how many times you witness it, the hundreds of crew, staff, people it takes to get all this prepared. I didn't see Mike Newell there, but I did watch the set being dressed....

Ever Wonder Who'll Make The Goblet of Fire Burn?
- [ M17 @ 02:20 PM . GMT . Movie: GoF ]
Well, maybe I didn't word that question correctly...
The next Harry Potter movie will have a distinctly Aussie input with a local company creating its digital animation. Rising Sun Pictures - with offices in Redfern and Adelaide - learned yesterday it would be in charge of animating key scenes in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
It will animate the movie's centrepiece effect - the flaming goblet of fire.
The movie is in production in Britain and is due for international release in November next year.
NSW Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasurer and Campbelltown MP Graham West said the contract was a glowing endorsement of Australia's reputation for animation and visual effects.
Train bosses rapped as filming shuts line
- [ Bunny @ 01:08 AM . GMT . Movie: GoF ]
RAIL bosses shut a scenic train line so the latest Harry Potter movie could be filmed.
September weekend trippers were diverted on to buses for an 80-minute journey back from the coast along a road that is single-track in places.
Angry locals described the move as 'madness'.
ScotRail were paid
around £50,000 to cancel the last trains from Mallaig to Fort William yesterday and today.
Hollywood executives booked the slot so the Hogwarts Express could be filmed once more on the line which crosses the famous Glenfinnan Viaduct, near Fort William.
One local said: 'Closing the line on the September weekend is madness.'
But a ScotRail spokesman said: 'We managed to keep disruption to a minimum. Passengers got compensation in the form of rail vouchers and Harry Potter memorabilia. It's good for Scottish tourism.
'The number of passengers who would use these trains is small and the bus journey takes roughly the same time.'
With regard to the fee paid to ScotRail, he said: 'ScotRail aren't making money out of this but are covering costs.'
Meanwhile, around 100 Highland youngsters climbed aboard the express as extras for the new film, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
Pupils from local high schools were drafted in as more than 100 technicians and crew worked in Glenfinnan yesterday.
They shot sequences on the line and at the viaduct.

No Percy in GoF
- [ Bunny @ 10:02 PM . GMT . Movie: GoF ]
From Chris Rankin's Site
As I make a point of telling people the honest truth about things, I've got an update on Harry Potter...
Having been speaking to my agent about why I've not heard anything from Warner Brothers re Goblet of Fire, they've been making some enquiries into the legal side of not being used on the film, when I've been contracted to it... Turns out that my contract states that I was contracted to appear in Prisoner of Azkaban +1 more HP film - it doesn't have to be the next in the series (as we'd all presumed) - what this basically means is that we're unlikely to be seeing Percy in Goblet of Fire, but that doesn't mean that he won't be in another film along the lines of the series... but we might not!

Williams will NOT be GoF Composer
- [ Bunny @ 05:07 PM . GMT . Movie: GoF ]
John Williams Fan Network has received confirmation from Warner Bros. that John Williams will not be composing the music for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. The new composer signed for the movie will be Patrick Doyle who has previously worked with director Mike Newell on Donnie Brasko and Into the West.
Patrick Doyle is best known for his collaborations with actor/director Kenneth Branagh, having composed works for Henry V, Dead Again, Much Ado About Nothing, Frankenstein and Hamlet. He has also worked with Michael Gambon on Robert Altman's Gosford Park and with Alfonso Cuarón on A Little Princess.
More (Much More) on Eastbourne Filming
- [ M17 @ 02:28 PM . GMT . Movie: GoF ]
Eastbourne Today has more on filming that occured this past week. Some interesting parts are underlined...
Executives from film-makers Warner Bros spent Wednesday afternoon and all of Thursday at three locations around the town. In an exclusive interview with the Eastbourne Herald, the film's location manager Sue Quinn told us why Eastbourne's picturesque downland was chosen as the setting. She also told us that the section filmed in Eastbourne plays an important part in the storyline.
Read much more at the link below...
Eastbourne was vying with two other towns to provide the location for this part of the film. Much of the movie is being shot in the studio this time round and none of the cast were in town during the filming. This footage will be used as back-drops. Ms Quinn said, 'We chose Eastbourne's downland because of its location. The setting close to the sea and the countryside was perfect for what we were looking for and I think it will look good in the film. 'The location is beautiful and the climate and weather were perfect today for what we were looking for. 'It's hard to say at this point in time how it will look on the screen and we wouldn't want to either.
Ms Quinn added, 'The filming we're doing in Eastbourne plays an important part in the film, for the section we're using the backdrops for. 'We'll be using blue screen technology so the actors will be imposed on the background scenery that we're filming here.' An Eastbourne Borough Council spokesman said, 'The council is delighted about the recent filming that has taken place on the downs. 'The work of the council's Film Unit and Downland Team ensured that Eastbourne was shown in a positive light when the film crew made visits to the area beforehand.
'This resulted in Eastbourne being their preferred location. 'People are interested when filming takes place and that interest is re-ignited when the film goes to the cinema, comes out on video and again on television. The long-term benefits for the town are enormous.'

The Magic of Harry Potter Comes to Seaford
- [ M17 @ 03:52 PM . GMT . Movie: GoF ]
THE LATEST Harry Potter blockbuster is being filmed in Seaford today. Film company Warner Bros chose the town's picturesque downland to serve as one of the backdrops in the fourth movie, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
However, only the crew is filming as the views are only being used for backdrops.
...the film crews will be filming at the Seven Sisters, Beachy Head and countryside surrounding Seaford from Wednesday lunchtime through to Thursday evening. Warner Bros was supposed to be arriving on Monday, but filming had to be scrapped due to poor weather. Unfortunately, as the downland views are being used as backdrops, none of the actors will be coming to Seaford for the filming.

Filming in Oxford
Just returned from filming on location in Oxford.
As usual it rained, it seems that it always rains when we are on location.
I spent nearly the whole week filming Just one scene, with Maggie Smith, Brendan Gleeson, Tom, Josh and Dan, it was great fun, I really enjoyed it.
Brendan Gleeson was great, he is very friendly, funny man who plays the part of Mad-Eye Moody.
As you will know, I'm not allowed to say too much about the filming, but I think that scene could turn out to be one of the funniest scene in all of the movies!

Rumors of dragons in Glenfinnan
by Marjorie Dawson, Wizard News UK Correspondent
I have just travelled up on the Caledonian Sleeper from London to Fort William, Scotland and onward into Hogwarts Country. As we sat breakfasting in the restaurant car enjoying the kind of countryside many of you will have seen in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, I got talking to a member of the staff (who wishes to remain anonymous).
We swept across the misty and desolate Rannoch Moor to Fort William through a sweeping horseshoe curve of track as my informant having spotted my Harry Potter t-shirt, badges etc., told me that there was a strong rumour that the line from Fort William to Mallaig was to be closed for a week at the end of September. This, of course, is the line famously used for filming, most memorably, the scary scene with Dementors in the Prisoner of Azkaban.
He said that they might be filming the 'dragon scene' which led to much conjecture on our part about whether this is Harry's Dragon task or Harry following Hagrid to see the dragons before the task. As the countryside is full of magnificent green sweeping mountains our first bets were on the former.

GoF on location
- [ Bunny @ 01:57 PM . GMT . Movie: GoF ]
When a little bird told CBBC Newsround that filming for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was going on in Oxford, we decided to go along to see who we could spot.
We heard that there was filming going on at the Bodleian Library and sure enough, the tell-tale signs of big lighting trucks nearby confirmed it.
I went into a bookshop to ask for directions and a friendly film crew member revealed that filming was going on in two locations.
It wasn't hard to find because there were massive green signs showing you where to go! Just then, a minibus pulled up and a whole load of crew got out, so I followed them to see where they were going.
They went into New College which looked like it would be used for filming Hogwarts scenes.
A man carrying a long, dark coat - the costume for Mad Eye Moody - went in, followed by a car with Dame Maggie Smith who plays Professor McGonagall, in it. This was definitely the place to be to see some action!
Then all of a sudden, a bucket of water from above fell on me! And then another! It turns out they were filming on the roof and were wetting it by chucking buckets of water everywhere.
While drying myself off, I then heard someone shout 'Action!' and then the booming voice of Mad Eye Moody, played by Brendan Gleeson, echoed through the air.
The doors to the college opened and I could see a courtyard inside. Some kids dressed in black Hogwarts robes were walking around inside, including Malfoy's pals Crabbe and Goyle.
Then about 50 kids dressed in raincoats to cover their robes came out in rows of two - as if they were actually in school - and marched up to the Bodleian Library where they disappeared inside.
Soon word spread that Potter filming was going on and a crowd of people had gathered to have a peek.
But the action was over after that and it all went quiet until lunchtime when food was brought in for the hungry film stars.
Pictures can be seen here. News from: BBC
Mike Newell Talks GoF
- [ Jasen @ 12:04 PM . GMT . Movie: GoF ]
Mike Newell, along with some other film crew, are featured in the latest issue of Movie Magic magazine:
Newell, a master storyteller, is thrilled to be directing Goblet, although he's also more then a tad apprehensive. "The films definitely have a dark, frightening feel to them," he says. "There's romance and magic in the story, but its mixed with this fear, this overwhelming dread. I want to be sure to capture the right mood, the right feeling. It's important to capture all the aspects of the story in the film, and that's my challenge. It's an honor to follow directors Chris Columbus and Alfonso Cuarón, who have done so much to establish the tradition of Harry Potter on film."
Director Chris Columbus, who brought the first two Harry Potter films to life, believes that Newell has absolutely nothing to worry about. "It's a great gig for a director to walk into," he muses. "You've got your cast, you've got your sets, you've got all your elements in place. All the initial groundwork is there, and you can have a field day bringing your vision to the screen."
And producer David Heyman is delighted with the addition of Newell, the first British director to take the reins of this very British story. "These are British books, and there's something to be said for that," he says with a laugh. "There's a sense of humor and a sense of nervousness that J.K. Rowling brought to her work, and I think Mike will be able to really capture that spirit. Plus, he's made films with young people before."
Thanks to Veritaserum!

GoF Scenes: What's in, What's Out
- [ iruhkoi @ 05:53 PM . GMT . Movie: GoF ]
The following was reported at Mugglenet, by a member named "Blackstar." The member claimed to have worked with a movie review site which still provides him with pieces of information regarding upcoming films. This information has not been confirmed by Warner Bros. and should be treated as RUMOR only.
What's Been Cut:
- Everything S.P.E.W. related
- The Dursleys
- The Hogwarts Express (there are shots of the train, but no footage from inside)
- The Weighing of the Wands
What's Been Drastically Cut:
- The Yule Ball
- The Quidditch World Cup
- Rita Skeeter (doesn't have as much film time as book time)
- Harry stressing over the egg clue
- Scenes with Snape
- Hagride and Madame Maxime romance
What Hasn't Been Cut:
- Opening scene involving Voldemort, Wormtail, and Nagini
- The Dark Mark scene
- The "Potter Stinks" badges
- The 3 tasks (although the spider may be cut from the third)
- Dobby and Winky
- The Pensieve
- The ending with...the death
The following was the full report:
What's been cut
* The SPEW storyline altogether, opening scene with the Dursleys, the Hogwarts express (there are shots of it, but nothing in the train,) and the wand weighing.
What's still in
* Creepy opening scene with Voldemort, Wormtail and Nagini. The Dark Mark scene, the "Potter Stinks" bit, the skrewts, the horntail challenge, the merpeople challenge (should be very cool!) The final challenge, although the spider may NOT be in it. (My source didn't remember seeing it.) The Sphinx is in. So is Dobby and Winky, the Portkeys, Crouch freaking out, the Pensieve scene and Cedric's end.
Things that are drastically cut
* Yule Ball, Quidditch World Cup, Rita Skeeter stuff (she's in it, but not as much as the book,) Harry stressing over the egg clue, Snape scenes (he's not in it much,) Hagrid & Maxine love story (it's there, but just reduced to a few brief moments for humor,) Dumbledore's humor (again... they never get him right!)
Note on the ending
* They manage to get it all pretty much in, which is surprising given what's going on. It sounds like they really pulled it off. The second challenge really acts as a mid-movie action sequence that should blow the doors off of a lot of what we've seen so far in the films. The final challenge also sounds amazing, and the ending should be really creepy. I know they say this with every movie, but this one could be really eerie (not just "dark") because of the very evil Voldemort scenes. Not sure what the young ones will think of it. This stands to do justice to the book, and be the best movie of the series! (And after Cuaron's work, that's saying something!)

Williams May Score GoF
- [ M17 @ 05:36 PM . GMT . Movie: GoF ]
After reports that John Williams may NOT score Goblet of Fire, JWFan.net has this:
In the program notes to the Hollywood Bowl concert by John Mangum, the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association's Program Designer/Annotator says the fourth movie will have a Williams' score:
Because of his music, Williams has come to be indelibly associated with several other film series, among them the four Superman films and the three Harry Potter films (so far - the fourth, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, is due out next year, and will have another Williams score).
At this point we cannot confirm whether this information comes from Williams' himself. A month ago, we learned from both the director of music at Warner Brothers and Conrad Pope (John Williams orchestrator) that the composer was not scoring Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire due to scheduling conflicts, and was interested in doing Memoirs of a Geisha.
Meanwhile, The John Williams Web Pages contain this:
John Williams has scored Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, and will also the score the fourth film in the series, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, if his schedule permits.

ruin you've become. And to think
you almost ruled the world. Of
course, that was before. Then the
cookie crumbled. I'll never forget
forget the day it happened. It's
quite remarkable to see a man
lose everything in the blink of
an eye. To see him...
(a hard smile)
...completely lose his grip.
As Crouch gains some dominion over the bag, he holds it out before a wary Fleur.
Miss Delacour, if you will...
FLASH! The photographer steps forward to capture the moment and Moody is revealed, having heard Rita's every word.
Fleur swiftly withdraws her hand from the squirming silk and finds a tiny MODEL of a DRAGON bearing the number "2." It pads angrily over her palm, lets out a TINY PUFF of SMOKE.
The Welsh Green. Mr. Krum...
Krum reaches in, draws "3."
The Chinese Fireball...
Then Cedric: "1"
The Swedish Short-Snout. Which leaves...
Dumbledore's eyes darken as they peer into Harry's palm. The miniature Horntail rears up angrily, lets out a ROAR and emits a TINY BALL of FIRE.
These represent four very real
dragons, each of which has been
given a golden egg to protect.
Your objective is simple: Collect
the egg. This you must do, for
each egg contains a clue, without
which you cannot hope to survive
the next task. Any questions?
The Champions stand mute.
Very well. Good luck to you all.
Mr. Diggory, at the sound of the
cannon, you may pro--
KA-BLOOM! Filch fires a SMALL CANNON a tad early, causing all present to nearly jump out of their skins.
Cedric stares at the tiny dragon in his hand, then closes his fingers over it and strides away. CAMERA RISES behind the remaining TRIO as Cedric exits...rising higher as the nseen crowd ROARS...rising into the peak of the tent where the canvas undulates with the FLAMES that FLICKER beyond...cycling slowly back down to...
Harry. Standing alone. As he begins to move, CAMERA tracks after, following him through the tent and into...
INT. ARENA - LATE AFTERNOON
...the ROARING arena, where HUNDREDS of SCREAMING FACES wheel above him and THREE MASSIVE BANNERS hang TATTERED and SMOKING. Only the banner opposite, emblazoned with the HOGWARTS CREST, is wholly intact. Then...
A FIREBALL BURSTS through the center of it and the banner DISINTEGRATES, revealing...the Horntail. Yellow eyes blzing. Spiked tail punishing the ground where a GLIMMERING GOLDEN EGG lies. Harry points his wand to the sky:
Instantly, CAMERA CRANES high, soaring above the clearing and the forest that contains it, leaving the shrieking voices behind, finding Hogwarts Castle on the horizon. A PINPRICK appears in the sky, lengthening, drawing closer in a RUSH of AIR. And then...Harry's FIREBOLT streaks into view.
CAMERA CRANES DOWN, plummeting back into the abyss of SCREAMING VOICES, tracking the broom right into...
Instantly, Harry ROCKETS into the air, clothes snapping, hair fluttering off his SCAR.
Engraged, the Horntail's head swivels, yellow eyes tracking Harry's every move. As Harry DIVES...
...the Horntail SPITS forth a BLAZING ROPE of FIRE. Harry swoops, streaking under the flames, straightens out, DIVES again, then looks down and...
...sees the dragon's SPIKED TAIL lashing up like a whip.
Harry rolls sideways, strangling the Firebolt's handle as the dragon's tail whistles past and a GUST of WIND buffets him.
Rolling upright, Harry jets away, dodging one volley of FIRE after another, then loops down and ...finds himself heading directly at the Horntail. Furious, the dragon rises up, sends forth an errant BLAST of FIRE and, for the briefest of moments, leaves the golden egg exposed.

More Information on Miranda Richardson ('Rita Skeeter')
- [ Mischief Managed! @ 07:24 PM . GMT . Movie: GoF ]
It's a dream job for an actress to land a role in the latest "Harry Potter" film while also turning the tables on the press. Brit Miranda Richardson will play Rita Skeeter, the muckraking reporter in the Mike Newell-directed "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire."
In the fourth installment of the children's series, based on the best-selling books by J.K. Rowling, the young wizard Harry comes to terms with his fame as he enters the challenging Triwizard Tournament, held between three wizarding schools.
Skeeter is a reporter for the wizards' paper, The Daily Prophet, and has a reputation for biased views, sniffing out news stories even in the most protected, private circles, and plaguing Harry with her endless questions.
Richardson joins other "Harry Potter" newcomers Ralph Fiennes as Lord Voldemort, Brendan Gleeson as Mad-Eye Moody, Robert Pattinson as Harry's friend Cedric Diggory, Stanislav Ianevski as Quidditch star Viktor Krum, French actress Clemence Poesy as Beauxbatons student Fleur Delacour and Katie Leung as Harry's love interest Cho Chang.

Goblet of Fire to be "the most expensive movie ever made"
- [ iruhkoi @ 07:29 PM . GMT . Movie: GoF ]
And apparently more expensive than any of the movie adaptations from the Lord of the Rings trilogy. From the Sunday Mail:
Goblet Of Fire the fourth Potter film will cost £170 million £5 million more than Return of the King, the last in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
Filming is due to begin in April and [director Mike] Newell said: ''I think of myself as being really lucky. I'm going to make the most expensive film there has ever been.
[Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid)]'s character has presented Newell with a giant sized headache finding an 8 ft tall French woman to play Hagrid's love interest, Madame Maxime. He said: ''We are casting right now. I've been in Paris, looking for giant women and French schoolgirls.''

Well, is it déjà vu all over again? This from JWfan.net:
We have learned from two very reliable sources that John Williams is not scoring Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, due to scheduling conflicts -although things might change in the coming months.
According to one of the sources (someone very close to the composer), Williams might write the score for Memoirs of a Geisha. Both 'Harry Potter 4' and 'Geisha' are scheduled for release in Fall, 2005.
